tonight became the falcons all-time leader in receptions. how does that sound to you? >> it sounds good, you know? it just speaks of my consistency throughout the year and just going out there and just being consistent and going out there and playing football. you know, i love my team, man, i go out there and play hard for those guys. >> michele: you told me earlier that really until you guys win in the postseason, people aren't maybe going to give you the liftlif legislatesy. at 8-0 how good are the falcons? >> we are starting to be a good football team and that is good, man, we need these kind of wins so we in the playoffs we can win them so we doing a good job right now. >> michele: roddy, congratulations. >> thank you. >> michele: over to julio jones now. earlier in the game a look at on the receivers as dallas was shutting down the run. how did you succeed in those circumstances? >> the preparation throughout the week. practice. matt comfortable throwing the deep ball. you know? he going to take us over there. if it's one-on-one matchups he
11:31 pm
just throw it up there and let us make a play and what i did early on. >> michele: playing alongside roddy white. matt has told us that you might be the most improved player on this team. what is it like to have roddy white next to you and matt ryan throwing to you and how have they contributed to that? >> a great mentors. i come out here, i don't have any pressure on me. i just got to come out here and just play. me i put pressure on myself because i don't want want to let the guys next to me down. glad we got a "w" tonight. >> michele: you didn't let anyone down tonight. congratulations, julio. >> michele, thanks. tony dungy, your reaction to tonight's game. a falcon win and cowboy loss. >> bob, what we saw tonight, again, was just demonstration of the difference between atlanta and dallas. atlanta is making those plays in the fourth quarter to win close games. dallas, as we talked about on the pregame show, as cris talked about in the fourth quarter when
11:32 pm
they had an opportunity, just can't make the fundamental plays. orlando scandrick a chance to stop a drive and misses a tackle and another third down situation and he grabs a jersey. this is is what has happened to dallas over and over in the fourth quarter. they just can't make the fundamental play in the fourth quarter to win it. >> now the giants lost at home today. eli manning had an off day. pittsburgh came in and won. we have seen the giants stumble before at mid season. but the question would be -- could any of the other teams in the division take advantage? >> yeah, i believe giants fans are a little bit uneasy today because they have seen this, where the giants have played so well early in the year, but now where they normally are taking advantage of that fourth quarter eli manning game winning drive, they couldn't get it today. just too much pressure on eli and coming back to the pack a little bit. now, dallas blew a golden opportunity tonight to get back to within one game in the loss column.
11:33 pm
philadelphia has a big game tomorrow in new orleans that, all of a sudden, is that much bigger. if one of these teams can get going, they possibly can catch the giants. giants have to right the ship. >> but the chances of that seem slim. not the giants righting the ship but the cowboys or the eagles and certainly not washington catching them. you still have to like the giants situation in their division. tony, thanks very much. we turn to mike florio of pro football talk. mike, take us through some of today's most important injuries. >> bob, running back darren mcfadden of the raiders has had several injuries over the course of his career and has another one and suffered ankle injury on sunday in the loss to the buccaneers and his status is reportedly week-to-week. the green bay packers linebacker clay moouts left today's game with a hamstring injury. also receiver jordy nelson came into the game with a hamstring injury and left early with a sprained ankle. for the steelers, receiver antonio brown left the game with an ankle injury and afterward said it's high ankle sprain. i'm told it's not and he can

>> al: you know, that schedule came out before the season and we looked at, okay, november 11th, houston at chicago. the first thing i thought about they never play each other and only met twice since the texans in the league in 2000. you go what kind of a game is that going to be? now we have two teams 7-1, the bears with that crazy defense. this is going to be something next week. >> cris: it's remarkable to watch the bears play defense. they are scoring defensively at a rate we have never seen in the national football league. two more return touchdowns and they will have tied an nfl record and we're sitting there at the halfway point. now they have to go up against an excellent offense.

11:42 pm
ohio, you know me by now. >> the final nbc poll before the election shows this race is a statistical dead heat. and that increases pressure for both campaigns to get out the vote on tuesday. but first, the candidates are gearing up for one final sprint on the long road to the white house. brian moore, wbal tv 11 news. >> and the push to the polls continues here in maryland where thousands turned out for early voting. local groups continue to work to influence voters 48 hours before the election. sara sampson joins us with more. >> the intensity of this election is showing no signs of letting up before tuesday. here in maryland the debate is particularly heated over ballot questions regarding the green act, same sex marriage and gambling. one expert says those issues are the ones that will be sending voters here to the polls. with just two days before

in terms of changing minds or affecting the outcome of the election, generally that's not the keas. >> usually it's the top of the ticket that drives voters to the polls. in this case, the race for president. but here in maryland, few would dispute president obama will almost certainly win the state's electoral votes so turnout here could hinge on statewide ballot questions. >> we've got at least three ballot questions that are very emotional in nature. they could drive turnout. >> this election has seen record turnout for early voting. almost 12% of eligible maryland vote verse cast their ball los. norris is wary of any predictions from those numbers. >> we don't have evidence nationwide from studies that early voting makes a difference in overall turnout, turnout among subgroups or the results of an election. >> now if you weren't part of the 12% that voted early, the polls open tuesday at 7:00 a.m. and will stay open until 8:00 p.m. reporting live in the news room, sara sampson, wbal tv.

it's going to take a long way around to get here and i'll talk more about that in a min. let's look at the temperatures we had during the day today. a little chilly, 51 the high at the airport, typically we should be around 61 at this time of year. the morning low this year was just above freezing and we could be close to that overnight tonight as well. it depends on what the clouds are leek around daybreak in the morn, or a couple of hours before that while the clouds are in there, it may be hard to get the temperatures to drop. you can see the readings have gone up since the clouds moved in. indianapolis 4 . stars are clear at ocean city. parkton, 36. frederick, 41. it's in the 20's in far western maryland. still on the ground, helping refrigerate things a little bit. you see the cloud deckover head. some of this cloudiness being helped by this disturbance to the south. if we get break the temperatures could really tumble tonight.

but what's of prime interest to us, not the storm to the south of us but the storm out to the west. it's going to be caught up in the jet stream and eventually wind up on the east coast as potentially a big storm and depending on how close to the coast it is, we could have another ride with some wild weather about wednesday or so. but our forecast tonight a quiet one. clouds and clearing, i fwess, would be the best way to put it. the colder readings if it clear, the slightly warmer readings if the clouds stick around. freeze warnings are out because of the potential to get down to freezing. winds light northerly, 2 to 7 miles per hour. the purple shaded areas, cecil county, harper county an others are under that warn, including the eastern shore for the daybreak hours tomorrow. during the day tomorrow, 48 to 52 the high. another day where temperatures are below average.

11:55 pm
will behave. the european is slower move, more rain, maybe snow involved but at least the winds, the strong winds wouldn't be as widespread. we'll have to see what happens with this. here's the seven-day forecast. 50 tomorrow, 48 on election day. election day still dry. we'll just peck up clouds at the end of the day. the craziest day probably will be wednesday. the highest rein chance, windiest conditions, maybe snow on thursday and the rain will taper off. >> this is 11 sports. >> ravens wrap up and the rest of the record setting day on the way. we do a little championship soccer, women's soccer. facing u.v.a., that's what they're playing for. the championship trophy. gloria douglas for virginia. that's a beautiful rocket into the far corner. perfectly placed. 1-0, woo haos. cavaliers controlling it.
